NEO Magazine Celebrate 100th Issue With a FREE Party! Organised with Japan Underground and Manga UK

Get Saturday 7 July in to your diaries, because NEO Magazine is throwing a party – and you’re all invited!

To celebrate reaching a remarkable 100 issues – setting NEO as the longest running British magazine of its type, ever! – publisher Uncooked Media will organise a free event at London’s Bloomsbury Lanes, consisting of music, cosplay, live bands, Japanese food and more.

Manga Entertainment will also be involved in the night, celebrating the release of Dragon Ball Z on DVD by screening the whole first series! The best super saiyan-inspired cosplayer of the night will also receive a DBZ boxset.

The festivities begin from 8PM, where the magazine’s music editor, and head of Japan Underground, Tom Smith will fill the floor with cutesy J-pop, bouncy J-rock and sexy K-pop tunes through to the 3AM closing time.

S.S.ROCKETS

Live music includes a set featuring traditional sounds of Japan from Hibiki Ichikawa, the highest qualified shamisen player in the UK, and Hokkaido rockers S.S.ROCKETS, who will be playing their biggest UK show to date.

Delicious Japanese snacks will also be served throughout the night thanks to street vendor Peko Peko Kitchen, while the venue has a large selection of beers and spirits, as well as pool, table top football, arcade machines, karaoke and bowling.

Come along and celebrate not only a milestone for NEO Magazine, but also a part of UK anime and manga history!

The event is strictly 18+, ID required.

About Tom Smith
Some say he's fuelled on nothing but energy drinks, and that when he visits Japan, he spends the whole time engaging the ground in an all too familiar way. But what we do know is that his words on the country's entertainment and culture find their way into NEO Magazine on a monthly basis, while everything else finds its way here. Be it quirky news item from the Land of the Rising Sun, or a story so gruesome it'd be rude not to pass it on, you'll find it here along with his general posts about life, work and most importantly play. And yes, he has had articles printed in the likes of MCV, GamesMaster, 360 Gamer and more, thanks for noticing.
